I am trying to pull out a list of fonts into my excel using vba, this code below is not working for me though. it is erroring out in the first for  statement as the fontlist does not return a count.

For i = 0 To Fontlist.ListCount - 1
Cells(i + 1, 1) = Fontlist.List(i + 1)
Next i

instead ...
Cells(i + 1, 1) = Fontlist.List(i + 1)

it should be ...
Cells(i + 1, 1) = Fontlist.List(i)

yes forgot to define this in my code, the whole code is now listed below. It lists out all the font names although there is a particular font names "UniverseLight" which does not come in my list of names..Not sure whether this is a name that is included in the Excel 2007 and I use Excel 2003.

The code below points at ID:=1728 which is something I have not digested. Is this Id a known for fonts and how is it a control.


Set FontList = Application.CommandBars("Formatting").FindControl(ID:=1728)
    
'   If Font control is missing, create a temp CommandBar
    If FontList Is Nothing Then
        Set TempBar = Application.CommandBars.Add
        Set FontList = TempBar.Controls.Add(ID:=1728)
    End If

For i = 0 To FontList.ListCount - 1
Cells(i + 1, 1) = FontList.List(i + 1)
Next i
